I don't know how this happened because I am not a fan of my writing skills (I noticed some of my grammatical errors later), but I'm really happy it translated ok and you guys were able to be there without without having to fly 30 hours to get there. ;D

blondesnotbombs wrote:Unlike the other ladies, I am going to comment on some of my favorite bits. #rasp#


Good. >:( Nothing against Jess and Ami but I'm always interested in people's favorite bits and not so favorite bits. (And this isn't a passive way to guilt trip you guys into picking your favorites, ok! ;) )

Yes! I read that perfectly in Jemaine's voice! #pinklove# (Might have to make a gif of that soon.)

blondesnotbombs wrote: #haha# The whale banter seems to get more elaborate/ridiculous with every tour. Much like their Demon Woman costumes.


I hope Nigel gets a little costume prop by the next tour for Demon Woman, making Matt work just a little extra harder. #haha#

I remember freaking out at their first Glasgow show when I first heard it live. They may have been their first time performing it in 2010, but I'm not sure. But anyway, it still sounded great, I loved the addition of the triangle.

Well, the last time you heard that song live you were at the Hollywood Bowl, so... #lol#


Did you read me interaction with Nigel yet?! #rofl#

blondesnotbombs wrote:I think I would like to hear Bret say toboggan. It sounds adorable in my head. #haha#


It was adorable. Every time we mentioned Mt. Taranaki/Mt. Egmont my friend would quote Bret's "Did you toboggan down?"

blondesnotbombs wrote:My favorite memory of the Atlanta show was when they finished playing Demon Woman (for the very first time!) and Bret and Nigel, after letting out that big howl at the end, just looked at each other and burst out laughing. It was such a great moment between the two of them, not for the audience, and it was lovely. (You can sort of see it at the end of this video. Nigel's not in shot, unfortunately, but you can see Bret throw his head back and laugh. So great.)


That was precious. #cry# It would have been nice to see Nigel too, I can't imagine what that head of hair would do to someone if he whipped back his head like that.

#lol#

His costume is my favorite of the three. The glittery tails on the back are what really make it. So amazing. Maybe next year they can add a top hat. #loveeyes#

I had avoided clips and spoilers until the Vegas show, so I was surprised and delighted the first time I heard it. And Think About It! #love3# They really used Nigel to great effect on those two songs.

That fabulous hair in a top hat... #ded#

Thank you for making the next show I see be an utter disappointment if this doesn't happen.

Another weird thing about this venue is literally half the audience in their seats during the intermission was eating ice cream. I don't know what this was so foreign to us, I'm just not used to concert venues selling ice cream.


They do that in the UK too - I thought it odd when I saw my first play in London, but you better believe I bought myself some ice cream and ate it all up during the intermission. ;D

An interesting guardian article on this topic: http://www.guardian.co.uk/stage/theatre ... e-interval


I bet the audience had an ice-cream hangover and that's why they were so weird.

#haha# #cloud9# You should have hugged your friend to not to feel weird among others. ;)

On my first day in Invercargill, I went to the park and everyone was saying "hi" to me. #love3#


The whole review was brilliant, #glomp# #notworthy# but I think this part made me laugh the most,

Another time during the night, I think Bret and Jem were trying to get a little more out of the crowd since they (ok, including me :P ) would get quiet and not really heckling. They asked how everyone was doing and they replied kind of with "Good!" It reminded me of A Texan Odyssey when they were at the Red Eyed Fly and Bret asked everyone how they were doing and they screamed and he asked if they could just say "good" so it it would sound more like home. Yeah, it was kind of like that. #rofl#

;D

Do you mean you didn't have a childhood where the person with a tray hung around their neck full of icecream stood at the side of the cinema screen in the interval between the cartoon and the main film? All lit up in the darkness and looking hopeful?

;D

(Hmm, you have lovely snow cones when you watch baseball #drool# - but not icecream at the cinema / theatre. *shakes head* ;) ;D )
